Fall Openings at Rosslyn Children’s Center

If you’re new to the area or seeking a new daycare/pre-school option for fall, Rosslyn Children’s Center (RCC) currently has a limited number of openings for infants, toddlers, 2 year-olds, 3 year-olds and Pre-Kindergarten.

We have recently relocated to a brand new center in the heart of Rosslyn, with our main entrance just past the Kent Street entrance to Freedom Park.

RCC has been a member of the Arlington community since 1991. An experienced administrative team works alongside a dedicated and tenured teaching team to provide developmentally appropriate experiences which foster growth, curiosity and development for children birth through six.

Each classroom is staffed with teaching teams to create a collaborative teaching approach that provides a rich learning environment.

RCC proudly offers an emergent curriculum, guiding children’s learning through play. Our lesson plans are not necessarily driven by a calendar, but are determined by what is relevant and interesting to the children.

Teachers who successfully work with an emergent curriculum must have not only a deep understanding of typical developmental stages and early brain development, but also the confidence, skills and experience to allow children to participate in their own learning.

The RCC community is very active within Rosslyn. All classrooms visit Freedom Park each week, with older classes exploring our urban setting regularly, including visits to the Farmers Market, the sandbox at Gateway Park, and Rosslyn community events. Regular community events and weekend “Parents’ Night Out” events make for a tight-knit and welcoming community.

Lydian + Lyric Luxe Apartments — Downtown D.C. Living with a True Neighborhood Vibe

Love the idea of living in the heart of D.C.? Here are two reasons that will inspire your next move: Lydian + Lyric.

A standout addition to the Mount Vernon Triangle skyline, these sleek, sister residences are joined by one amazing lifestyle in an authentic neighborhood that cares about everyone.

Centrally located at 4th and K Streets NW in Downtown D.C., Lydian + Lyric fill a city block and join dozens of hotspot restaurants, new high-end shops and premier employers moving into the area.

On the ground floor of both buildings you will find eateries brought to you by the owners of Georgetown’s legendary Baked & Wired: A Baked Joint, and soon — la BETTY. Stroll to the popular Busboys and Poets, Alta Strada, RPM Italian, Mandu and the future Apple store at the former Carnegie Library.

Also in walking distance are NoMa, the 14th Street Corridor, Shaw and Chinatown, as well as two Metro stations. And it’s just 15 convenient minutes from Arlington and many commuter routes.

All-new Lydian arrived last month and local renters have been quick to take advantage of its exceptional location, well-appointed apartments and thoughtfully designed amenity spaces.

Lydian’s homes include studio, one bedroom and two bedroom apartments. One-third of the building’s 324 units are already leased. Socially connected Lyric opened in 2014 and is fully leased. Lyric’s homes include one bedroom, one bedroom plus den and two bedroom apartments.

What’s to love about Lydian + Lyric?

At both buildings, you’ll enjoy features and details that are as stylish as they are comfortable, including floor-to-ceiling windows, gourmet kitchens with built-in wine racks, designer cabinetry and stainless-steel appliances, porcelanosa tile flooring, full size stackable washer and dryer, NEST programmable thermostats and balconies and private terraces in select units.

Both buildings elevate living in Mount Vernon Triangle with thoughtful amenities like rooftop retreats with resort-style pools, fire pits, demonstration kitchens and more. You’ll discover tranquility gardens for unwinding and state-of-the-art fitness centers with Peloton bikes and WellBeats virtual trainers for a great workout.

Services like a 24/7 concierge, valet dry cleaning, pet walking and dog grooming stations make everyday life a breeze. And so does having keyless fob access, bicycle storage and available gated underground parking.

Both residences are leasing quickly. For more information or to schedule a tour, visit here or contact the leasing team at 202-777-0740. Developed by Quadrangle Development and The Wilkes Company.

Thousands Share Feedback for Crystal City’s “Future Cities Project”

More than a thousand people have given their feedback on how to make Crystal City, Pentagon City and Potomac Yard — Arlington a better place — and that’s just online.

Hundreds more have shared their thoughts at close to a dozen on-site engagement activities throughout the area, and the project will continue to gain momentum throughout the summer.

The Crystal City Business Improvement District (BID) is now several months into a multidimensional strategic planning process exploring the nature of the greater submarket that includes Crystal City, Pentagon City and Potomac Yard — Arlington.

The process, called the Future Cities Project, includes an extensive community outreach effort via Neighborland, a platform that enables the public to engage in an accessible and equitable way both online and in person.

In addition to engaging online via www.futurecitiesproject.org, the Crystal City BID has been staging onsite engagement efforts at busy locations around the area, including Metrorail stations, residential and office lobbies, shopping areas and local events. Over the next two weeks, Crystal City BID staff will pop up at various locations soliciting immediate feedback via the effort’s signature whiteboard.

New questions — which focus on enhancing the quality of life, maximizing inclusivity and adding cultural attractions and destinations — will be posted every few weeks to maximize participation and maintain interest over the course of the next three months.

For a complete and detailed schedule of upcoming dates and locations, please visit the Future Cities Project website. You may also share your feedback online, see what others have shared and vote on ideas that you agree with.

“The public feedback collected from the community through Neighborland will be a key input into our efforts to rethink the strategic priorities for the BID as an organization and the area,” said Crystal City BID Chief Operating Officer, Robert H. Mandle. “What we learn will help drive thinking about the area’s identity and what is most needed to create an integrated and vibrant walkable urban center.”

The Future Cities Project is guided by a Steering Committee drawn from the Crystal City BID’s Board of Directors, civic associations, business and arts groups and major property owners in the Pentagon City and Potomac Yard areas, along with other public and civic sector leaders and officials. Visit www.futurecitiesproject.com to get involved and learn more.
